The Complicated Legacy of Liberia’s Ellen Johnson Sirleaf | NowThis World The Complicated Legacy of Liberia’s Ellen Johnson Sirleaf | NowThis World
3 days ago En
Liberia. Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. Bright-eyed, full of optimism, but also widely viewed as unflinching, and hailed Liberia’s “Iron Lady,” Ellen Johnson- Sirleaf shouldered the responsibility of a nation racked by years of brutal Liberian civil war. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2rnE7yS Ellen Johnson Sirleaf was born in the nation’s capital Monrovia, Liberia in 1938. And politics ran her blood. She was the daughter of the first indigenous Liberian to serve in the country’s legislature. It’s important to mention that during this time there was divide between the indigenous population of Liberia and former slaves, called “Americo-Liberians” who had settled in Monrovia. The Americo-Liberians created a hierarchical society that suppressed the indigenous population, denying them basic rights. Sirleaf was thrust into the middle of this divide. Ellen Johnson Sirleaf studied in the United States before returning to Liberia to begin her government career at the Treasury Department. In the early ‘70s, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf worked as Assistant Finance Minister for then-president William Tolbert. Throughout the ‘70s, and despite her critiques of Tolbert’s policies, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf rose through the ranks to become the first woman Finance Minister in Liberia. But shortly after, violence would decimate the government. In 1980, President Tolbert and 27 other government officials were murdered in a coup, staged by military leader Samuel Doe, who would go on to become the first indigenous leader of Liberia. Ellen Johnson Sirleaf was one of four ministers who were spared. She later fled the country. And there’s a lot more to Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s story than the traditionally rosy Western media narrative. Watch this piece to find out more about her legacy.

Ebola Outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo | NowThis World Ebola Outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo | NowThis World

In a key region, near two international borders, where over 8 million people live, the ebola virus is spreading. And it might be uncontainable, according to world health officials. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2DUrMtl The ebola outbreak is happening in North Kivu province in the eastern region of the Democratic Republic of Congo. And although health workers and aid organizations have learned how to quickly contain and treat the virus, there’s a new obstacle this time… This is the first outbreak to happen in an active war zone. According to the DRC health ministry, teams that have been responding to the ebola outbreak have been attacked 3 to 4 times a week on average. That has made it nearly impossible to follow normal protocol that’s been used during other ebola outbreaks. Measures that include vaccinating at risk populations. Ebola is an infectious disease that affects the way blood clots. It can be fatal if contracted, which typically occurs through direct contact of bodily fluids. The ebola virus gained significant international media attention after it swept through urban population centers in West Africa starting in 2014. From 2014 to 2016, over 11,000 people died from the virus according to the Center for Disease Control. Despite the attention the 2014 outbreak received, the DRC has been battling Ebola for a long time. The first strain of the virus was originally discovered in 1976 in a river in the north of the country, called the Ebola River. But what is the war in the eastern Congo about, and how did this outbreak happen? Follow the link in our bio to watch the full report.

On December 1st, Mexico will get a new president. Former mayor of Mexico City Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador will take office. But Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador's road to the presidency was anything but easy. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2TSo6xL Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, also known as AMLO, first had to prevail over the incumbent Mexican administration, run by the PRI, a political party that has governed Mexico for most of the last century. After numerous corruption scandals and a failed war on drugs that’s killed almost 200,000 people since 2006, AMLO was hoping the Mexican people were hungry for change. The multitude of crises in Mexico seemingly confirmed issues that AMLO had been discussing for decades, vindicating his agenda and making him the clear frontrunner for the 2018 election. Throughout the campaign, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador built a broad coalition. His party MORENA, ran candidates who had formerly belonged to Mexico’s other, more dominant political parties. AMLO-mania was so strong during the campaign, that vendors began selling flags and masks with AMLO’s image on them. But who is AMLO? And how exactly did AMLO, Mexico’s long time political outsider, finally rise to the highest office in Mexican politics? And what's his plan for Mexico?

2 weeks ago En
In 2008, Rwanda became the first country in the world to have more than half of its government run by women. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://youtu.be/vo4_z80USmE Rwanda has the highest representation of women in politics in the world. And that’s largely hailed a major triumph for gender parity. But some Rwandan women and experts alike say that despite the country’s immense progress, there’s still a long way to go. We spoke to a Gender Expert who, following months of investigating and interviewing women in Rwanda, indicated that political representation and societal expectations of women don’t always perfectly align. Some women in Rwanda say the country still has a long way to go when it comes to gender equality in daily life. Government programs currently in place to help Rwandan women advance in politics still have room for improvement. Experts say they’re largely accessible to the elite, well-educated, and often English-speaking - whereas other women may never even hear about the efforts. In this episode we’re diving below the surface of what the Global Competitiveness Report has reportedly deemed the “best place in Africa to be a woman,” to look at how the country achieved this unprecedented level of gender representation in politics, and the societal barriers that still exist for Rwandan women today.

Left Behind: Sudan's Lost Children | NowThis World Left Behind: Sudan's Lost Children | NowThis World
2 weeks ago En
Hundreds of refugees are still waiting to be resettled, 30 years after fleeing conflict and persecution. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2KoLZZE In the 1990s, the world was shocked by the horrific stories of thousands of young children fleeing Sudan’s war by foot on their own. These children became known as the “lost boys” even though they included some girls too. Although some countries, including the United States, took some of them in, hundreds of those who were also waiting for there chance at being resettled are still waiting. This all began when civil war broke out in Sudan in 1980s. Up to 2 million people were killed over the course of the war. And no one was spared from the violence — not even children. Thousands of young kids, mostly boys, fled the war by foot. Leaving behind their families for safety. They embarked on a brutal thousand mile walk to Ethiopia. But many of the children wouldn’t make it. Many died from hunger and dehydration along their journey, some were even killed by wild animals or drowned crossing rivers. And the ones who made it safely to Ethiopia would soon find themselves on the move again - driven out by violence in 1991. Those who survived made their way to Northern Kenya. But what happens when refugees are forgotten? When decades pass, hopes wain, and everything stays the same? For this episode of NowThis World we are in the Kakuma Refugee Camp that was created in 1992 for these children, to speak to some of the refugees who still live there more than 20 years later. We find out what happens when a camp that was built as a temporary solution, becomes a permanent home.

Hungary’s Homeless Ban | NowThis World Hungary’s Homeless Ban | NowThis World
3 weeks ago En
Homelessness just became a crime in Hungary … again. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2BbnoEs Under the new ban written into Hungary’s constitution, homeless people caught living on the streets multiple times over a period of 90 days can face fines, mandatory public work, and even imprisonment. After several warnings, police officers are even allowed to destroy homeless people’s personal belongings. But believe it or not, this isn’t the first time Hungary has enacted this policy – so, how did we get back here? It started in April 2012, when, in the midst of a widespread economic crisis, the Hungarian government began enforcing a law that criminalized homelessness. Unemployment and poverty were on the rise. In a 2010 survey on homelessness, 14% of respondents said they lost their home because they couldn’t pay their rent or other bills. That might not be all that surprising, given what human rights groups say is just one part of a larger slew of human rights violations being committed under the Hungarian government. Under Prime Minister Orban, the government has passed a law making it a crime to help refugees and asylum-seekers, cracked down on independent media, and banned gender studies courses from universities because quote, “people are born either male or female.” The EU says the new homelessness law is one example of why it’s voted to sanction Hungary and potentially rescind its EU voting rights.

30 years after declaring independence, the Palestinian territories still lack a united government. We're taking a look at Palestine's history, sovereignty, and society to see how powerful it really is. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2DkhN0e In Palestine today, there are an estimated 4.5 million people living in the Palestinian territories, which are made up of the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and east Jerusalem. Both the West Bank and Gaza have considerably high population density, although Gaza's far outpaces the West Bank's. The West Bank, which is slightly smaller than the U.S. state of Delaware, has a population of more than 2.7 million. The Gaza Strip has a population of around 1.8 million, despite being roughly 16 times smaller in land size than the West Bank. And the population is extremely young too. The median age of Palestinians is around 19-years-old. For context, Israel has a median again of about 30. There's also a huge displacement problem for Palestinians. According to the United Nations, there are roughly 5 million Palestinian refugees in the world today - defined as those who were displaced from their ancestral homes after the 1948 war with Israel. Exactly 30 years today -- Yasser Arafat declared independence for the state of Palestine. But three decades later, the Palestinian territories still lack a united, fully-functioning government, freedom of movement for all of its citizens, and full international recognition as a sovereign state. So in this episode we're going to examine what this declaration of independence has meant for Palestinians. We'll speak to an expert from the Carnegie Endowment for Peace to help us analyze the effects this declaration has had on Palestinian politics, demographics and living conditions. And we'll pose the question… just how powerful is Palestine today?

In this episode we've compiled a list of the five richest places in the world. The richest places might surprise you. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2Qx0gFX The world has in excess of 80 trillion dollars, according to estimates.There is no surprise that much of those funds are possessed by the highly populated, global powers like The United States and China. But when you look at how much money a place has per person, you might be surprised about which ones come out in the top five. First, we have to get a little technical. We will be using the latest data made publicly available by the International Monetary Fund in April of this year. There are a number of different ways to calculate a country's wealth. But based on advice from experts and agencies like the United Nations Development Programme, our ranking will be based off of a place's GDP per capita, adjusted by Purchasing Power Parity, or PPP as is commonly called. PPP is essentially when money from different places are converted to a common currency to better reflect things like, the standard of living in a country. To break that down, the conversion rate, in theory, would give one PPP international dollar , the same purchasing power that one U.S. dollar has in the United State's economy. So, what are the richest places in the world today? #wealth #politics #internationalnews #usnews #economy Connect with NowThis » Subscribe to NowThis News: http://go.nowth.is/News_Subscribe » Like us on Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/News_Facebook » Tweet us on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/News_Twitter » Follow us on Instagram: http://go.nowth.is/News_Instagram » Find us on Snapchat Discover: http://go.nowth.is/News_Snapchat Connect with Judah: » Follow @judah_robinson on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/TweetJudah » Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/LikeJudah Connect with Alex: » Follow @AlexLJanin on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/TweetAlex » Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/LikeAlex Connect with Versha: » Follow @versharma on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/TweetVersha » Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/LikeVersha NowThis World is dedicated to bringing you topical explainers about the world around you.

Violent Extremism in the U.S. | NowThis World Violent Extremism in the U.S. | NowThis World
1 month ago En
White supremacist and other right-wing violence are currently the deadliest active domestic extremist movements in the U.S., according to data from several civil rights groups that track hate crimes and extremist violence. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2yLM3Of Over the last decade, right-wing extremists committed more than 70% of extremist-related murders, according to a report published earlier this year by the Anti-Defamation League's Center on Extremism. The Government Accountability Office similarly reported in 2017 that right-wing extremists were responsible for 73% of fatal extremist incidents since 9/11. The most common groups victimized by these extremists are those who are black, Hispanic, or part of a multi-racial couple or family. It's important to note that right-wing domestic extremism is an umbrella term under which various right-wing ideologies fall in the U.S. Most in recent years have been committed by white supremacists but crimes committed by people who are anti-government, anti-semitic, homophobic, Islamophobic, xenophobic, and fascist, among other things, also fall under this category. Though there are varying definitions, under the federal U.S. criminal code domestic terrorism is defined as, quote, "Acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State...intended to intimidate the population and influence the government." We spoke to the Southern Poverty Law Center to help break down what's contributing to the rise of these movements and what Americans can do to counteract the problematic perceptions of what they look like. #extremism #politics #internationalpolitics #terrorism Connect with NowThis » Subscribe to NowThis News: http://go.nowth.is/News_Subscribe » Like us on Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/News_Facebook » Tweet us on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/News_Twitter » Follow us on Instagram: http://go.nowth.is/News_Instagram » Find us on Snapchat Discover: http://go.nowth.is/News_Snapchat Connect with Judah: » Follow @judah_robinson on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/TweetJudah » Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/LikeJudah Connect with Alex: » Follow @AlexLJanin on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/TweetAlex » Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/LikeAlex Connect with Versha: » Follow @versharma on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/TweetVersha » Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/LikeVersha NowThis World is dedicated to bringing you topical explainers about the world around you.

The Rise of the Philippine's Rodrigo Duterte | NowThis World The Rise of the Philippine's Rodrigo Duterte | NowThis World
1 month ago En
Populist, Protector, Punisher, and Problematic. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2qlEJV3 Those are are just a few words that have been used to describe the Philippine president, Rodrigo Duterte. Rodrigo Duterte and his straight-talking, no-nonsense style of leadership has made him a hero to many in the Philippines. But his brutal, authoritarian approach to politics and law enforcement have raised serious human rights concerns - as well as threaten the delicate balance of alliances in the region. In the 1970s and 80s, Davao City was known as the "murder capital" of the Philippines. It was incredibly dangerous city, where communist insurgents and government forces would openly kill each other in broad daylight. Rodrigo Duterte wanted to stop this -- by any means necessary. So Rodrigo Duterte became a prosecutor for the city from 1977 - 1986, and worked to rid the city of criminal activity. He was so determined to lock up the very people he blamed for Davao's crime rate, that he was willing to do whatever it took -- even if it meant breaking the law himself. This ruthless style of accomplishing his goals made Duterte a popular figure among Davao's population and would become a common trend throughout his life. But Duterte had his eyes set on more than being a prosecutor. He would eventually become the Davao City mayor. He was elected on a platform focused on restoring peace and stability to Davao City. But shortly after he became mayor, bodies began to pile up in the streets. An armed vigilante group known as the Davao Death Squad began killing small-time drug dealers and petty criminals. Allegedly, the group also targeted Duterte's political opponents. But he continued to be re-elected. He was mayor of Davao City for seven terms, becoming one of the country's longest-serving mayors. And his brutal campaign to stomp out crime only escalated as his time in office grew. And he wasn't done yet.

India's #MeToo Movement | NowThis World India's #MeToo Movement | NowThis World
1 month ago En
Women in India are saying enough is enough. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2z6lhQe Almost one year after activist Tarana Burke's #MeToo movement erupted in the U.S., Indian survivors are sharing long ignored or unreported instances of sexual assault and harassment. The #metoo movement, which empowered survivors in the U.S. to speak up about harassment by little-known and high-profile perpetrators alike, has made global waves, and spread to places like France, China, and Kenya. And though #MeToo in India is making headlines as a new movement, some women are saying they've been speaking out for a long time, it's just people haven't been listening. This isn't the first time women in India are speaking out against sexual assault. But it's fair to say past allegations haven't caught fire on social media the way they are now. In fact, one of the allegations that sparked this movement first surfaced 10 years ago, but didn't really gain traction until just recently. When we zoom out, it's clear that violence against women in India, and elsewhere, is far from being eradicated. In June of this year, the Thomson Reuters Foundation ranked India the most dangerous country in the world for women, based on the verdicts and opinions of more than 500 experts, in part because of high rates of sexual violence. But despite the backlash and obstacles that women in India and around the world continue to face, they're raising their voices. We spoke to women in media from New Delhi and Mumbai to help establish how India got to this landmark moment, and what it could mean for the future of the global #MeToo movement. #India #MeToo #news #politics Connect with NowThis » Subscribe to NowThis News: http://go.nowth.is/News_Subscribe » Like us on Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/News_Facebook » Tweet us on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/News_Twitter » Follow us on Instagram: http://go.nowth.is/News_Instagram » Find us on Snapchat Discover: http://go.nowth.is/News_Snapchat Connect with Judah: » Follow @judah_robinson on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/TweetJudah » Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/LikeJudah Connect with Alex: » Follow @AlexLJanin on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/TweetAlex » Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/LikeAlex Connect with Versha: » Follow @versharma on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/TweetVersha » Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/LikeVersha NowThis World is dedicated to bringing you topical explainers about the world around you.

Jair Bolsonaro & the Rise of the Brazilian Right | NowThis World Jair Bolsonaro & the Rise of the Brazilian Right | NowThis World

A former army captain is on the verge of becoming Brazil's next president. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2OK0EE5 Jair Bolsonaro, a far-right candidate and provocateur, who was once relegated to the sidelines of politics, has managed to become the driving force in Brazil after 14 years of left-wing rule. Jair Bolsonaro's election could mean a political earthquake for Latin America. How did this happen? And what does this mean for Brazil? Let's start with how Jair Bolsonaro managed to become the center of attention in Brazil after so many years with Brazil's Workers' Party at the helm. In 2015, Brazil was in turmoil. In addition to the first revelations of the 'Lava Jato' (Car Wash) corruption scandal Brazil also started to suffer a financial crisis with a stiff decrease on its GDP and a rise in crime and unemployment, which ultimately would keep the country among the most violent places to live in the world. Brazil's status as a strong player in the world economy came to an end. Bolsonaro's place in Brazilian politics was largely seen as that of the provocateur whose support wasn't expected to rise. Few people expected Jair Bolsonaro to be the favorite for a presidential candidacy for the brazil election 2018. Some credit this rise in Bolsonaro's profile to the downfall of the previous leading candidate in these elections, former president Luiz Inacio Lula Da Silva. Da Silva, also known as 'Lula,' was Brazil's president for two terms, from 2003 to 2011. He was also the driving force and soul of the Workers' Party. Da Silva's administration's accomplishments included helping bring 20 million brazilians out of acute poverty and moving the country's economy to the 8th place in the world. But his administration was also marred by corruption scandals like Mensalao, which involved several top officials of his government and also himself. Then came the Lava Jato accusations, with 9 charges involving Da Silva. Back in 2011, he left office with big popularity numbers. But in July 2017 everything changed. Lula was sentenced to nearly 10 years in prison for receiving a bribe. After appealing, his sentence was raised to 12 years and in September 2018, he was officially barred from running for office . With only a few weeks to go before the election, Lula decided to step aside and throw his support behind Fernando Haddad, a former Sao Paulo Mayor who was going to be his running mate for the Workers' Party. But things didn't go as planned. Watch this episode to find out how Jair Bolsonaro became the favorite and how the right is on the rise in Brazil. #JairBolsonaro #Brazil #politics #SouthAmerica #internationalnews Connect with NowThis » Subscribe to NowThis News: http://go.nowth.is/News_Subscribe » Like us on Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/News_Facebook » Tweet us on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/News_Twitter » Follow us on Instagram: http://go.nowth.is/News_Instagram » Find us on Snapchat Discover: http://go.nowth.is/News_Snapchat Connect with Judah: » Follow @judah_robinson on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/TweetJudah » Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/LikeJudah Connect with Alex: » Follow @AlexLJanin on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/TweetAlex » Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/LikeAlex Connect with Versha: » Follow @versharma on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/TweetVersha » Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/LikeVersha NowThis World is dedicated to bringing you topical explainers about the world around you.

Inside the First Palestinian Museum in the U.S. | NowThis World Inside the First Palestinian Museum in the U.S. | NowThis World

Faisal Saleh is a Palestinian immigrant in the United States and founder of the first permanent Palestinian museum in the U.S. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2EI5pcS The Palestinian museum serves as a space for education and elevation of Palestinian art rather than war and conflict. The Palestinian museum defies the traditional Western narrative of the Palestinian story by acting as a space for celebration of cultural life rather than political divide. Saleh's parents left Salama during Israel's War of Independence, eventually settling in the West Bank town of El Bireh, near Ramallah. At the age of 18, in 1969, two years after the 1967 war, Saleh moved to the United States, studied at Oberlin College, earned his M.B.A. from the University of Connecticut, and became an entrepreneur. Hundreds of photos, paintings and sculptures by some of the most prominent Palestinian artists are proudly displayed at his museum, including pieces from Gaza, Jordan, Lebanon, and Ramallah. Saleh has managed this despite the obstacles of shipping art from occupied territories like Gaza and West Bank. Saleh is financing the museum himself, but he said he hopes to eventually attract enough financial support to relocate the gallery from its suburban, turnpike setting to major cities across the U.S. #Palestine #FaisalSaleh #MiddleEast #Gaza #WestBank Connect with NowThis » Subscribe to NowThis News: http://go.nowth.is/News_Subscribe » Like us on Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/News_Facebook » Tweet us on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/News_Twitter » Follow us on Instagram: http://go.nowth.is/News_Instagram » Find us on Snapchat Discover: http://go.nowth.is/News_Snapchat Connect with Judah: » Follow @judah_robinson on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/TweetJudah » Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/LikeJudah Connect with Alex: » Follow @AlexLJanin on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/TweetAlex » Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/LikeAlex Connect with Versha: » Follow @versharma on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/TweetVersha » Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/LikeVersha NowThis World is dedicated to bringing you topical explainers about the world around you.

The Precipitous Fall of Paul Manafort Explained | The Russia Desk | NowThis World The Precipitous Fall of Paul Manafort Explained | The Russia Desk | NowThis World
1 month ago En
Paul Manafort was one of the president’s top campaign officials and a long-time confidant. So what inspired the former lobbyist to flip on the president and plead guilty to conspiracy? » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2QZLHKX After months of fighting, Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has pled guilty to one count of conspiracy against the U.S. and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice for his efforts to tamper with witnesses as part of a grueling FBI investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The Mueller investigation essentially found Paul Manafort indirectly guilty of collusion in the 2016 presidential election with Russia in support of Trump and against Hillary Clinton. Paul Manafort has completely flipped on President Trump since he got started on the Trump campaign, and now he's agreed to cooperate with the FBI and Robert Mueller's investigation into the Russians and Vladimir Putin's influence on the 2016 presidential election. In the 5 months Paul Manafort worked for the Trump campaign, several possible criminal events occurred, including the Trump Tower meeting in which Manafort and Don Jr. met with Russians. But former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort's ties with the Kremlin go back even further. Paul Manafort and right wing Infowars host Roger Stone opened a lobbying firm in the early '80s that had a lot of ties to Washington, and Trump was introduced to Manafort and Stone through his close friend and mentor Roy Cohn. Later on, Paul Manafort went on to work in the Ukraine for pro-Russian politician Viktor Yanukovych, who later became President Yanukovych. Fast forward to October 2017, when Special Counsel Mueller announced charges against Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, and George Papadopoulos, and provided evidence that the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russian government to obtain damaging info on Hillary Clinton. #PaulManafort #DonaldTrump #USpolitics #RobertMueller #HillaryClinton #worldnews #Russia Connect with NowThis » Subscribe to NowThis News: http://go.nowth.is/News_Subscribe » Like us on Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/News_Facebook » Tweet us on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/News_Twitter » Follow us on Instagram: http://go.nowth.is/News_Instagram » Find us on Snapchat Discover: http://go.nowth.is/News_Snapchat Connect with Judah: » Follow @judah_robinson on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/TweetJudah » Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/LikeJudah Connect with Alex: » Follow @AlexLJanin on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/TweetAlex » Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/LikeAlex Connect with Versha: » Follow @versharma on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/TweetVersha » Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/LikeVersha NowThis World is dedicated to bringing you topical explainers about the world around you.

The Disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi | NowThis World The Disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi | NowThis World
1 month ago En
The October 2nd disappearance of a prominent Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi shocked the world. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2NEviJJ The last place Khashoggi was seen was at the Saudi Arabian Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey. He entered, but reportedly never left. Now, over a week later, little is still known about Jamal Khashoggi's whereabouts. Officials from Turkey now fear the worst. They worry that the Saudis murdered the Saudi journalist after he entered its diplomatic station. Jamal Khashoggi, a Washington Post journalist and exiled Saudi critic, wasn't always a critic of the Saudi government. In fact, he had a history of working very closely with the Saudi government even serving as an adviser to senior Saudi officials for a time. Despite his close relationship with the Saudi royal family, his vocal support for reforms often got him in trouble - even forced out from newsroom leadership positions in Saudi Arabia on several occasions. He advocated for equal rights for women, criticized the kingdom's crackdown on human rights activists, and called for greater press freedoms. That was especially true after the new crown prince Mohammad Bin Salman took control. Jamal Khashoggi fled Saudi Arabia in September, 2017 and went into self-imposed exile in the United States. And Khashoggi became even more outspoken in his exile. He began writing for The Washington Post, where he openly criticized Saudi Arabia's military campaign in Yemen, as well as Mohammed Bin Salman's leadership. But is this what lead to the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi? We explore all of this further in this week's episode of NowThis World. #JamalKhashoggi #SaudiArabia #WashingtonPost #politics #DonaldTrump Connect with NowThis » Subscribe to NowThis News: http://go.nowth.is/News_Subscribe » Like us on Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/News_Facebook » Tweet us on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/News_Twitter » Follow us on Instagram: http://go.nowth.is/News_Instagram » Find us on Snapchat Discover: http://go.nowth.is/News_Snapchat Connect with Judah: » Follow @judah_robinson on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/TweetJudah » Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/LikeJudah Connect with Alex: » Follow @AlexLJanin on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/TweetAlex » Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/LikeAlex Connect with Versha: » Follow @versharma on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/TweetVersha » Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/LikeVersha NowThis World is dedicated to bringing you topical explainers about the world around you.

War in Afghanistan: 17 Years Later | NowThis World War in Afghanistan: 17 Years Later | NowThis World
2 months ago En
After 17 years long, the war in Afghanistan is now considered the longest-running war in U.S. history. But why did the United States invade Afghanistan in the first place, and is anyone winning this war? » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://youtu.be/HPAONq36HKg The war in Afghanistan is now 17 years old - making the Afghanistan war the longest-running war in United States history. To put that number into perspective, young Americans can now enlist to fight in a war that began before they were even born. The war in Afghanistan that was started under President Bush and continued under President Obama, is now in the hands of President Trump -- who's taken a drastically different approach to the Afghanistan war than his predecessor. And making sense of Trump's Afghanistan war strategy and the us forces in Afghanistan has been on the minds of many. Trump, who said his initial instinct was to pull out of Afghanistan, had a change of heart when sworn into office. And instead of reducing U.S. involvement, he increased it. The Taliban resurgence now threatens large parts of Afghanistan, an ISIS-linked group has emerged, and civilian deaths are expected to rise this year, Nearly two decades after the United States invaded the country following the September 11th attacks. According to the UN, in 2017 over 10,000 civilians were killed or injured as a result of the conflict. And it fears this year's war injuries Afghanistan number will be considerably higher. Many people have lost their lives and millions have been forced to flee their homes, since the beginning of the war in Afghanistan. And the financial cost of this war is upwards of a trillion dollars, according to some estimates. So why is there war in Afghanistan and why did the United States invade Afghanistan in the first place?

The Problem With the UN Veto Power | NowThis World The Problem With the UN Veto Power | NowThis World
2 months ago En
The permanent 5 members of the UN Security Council have a unique power. It's their right to veto. But how has it's implementation failed to address humanitarian crises around the world? » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://youtu.be/sEKQYYhp3eE Though even the United Nation's fiercest critics admit the UN has done a lot of good around the world, the United Nations has also been accused of being complicit in corruption, tangled in bureaucracy, and increasingly reactive rather than proactive in addressing the world's crises. It's also been accused of failing to act to prevent genocides in places including Rwanda in 1994, Bosnia in 1995, and Darfur, Sudan in the early 2000s. Some have even called the United Nations Security Council permanent 5 void of power and totally powerless. But there are certain countries in the UN (United States, United Kingdom, Russia, France, China) that get to exercise real power. We're talking about the UN Security Council's Permanent 5 members or P5. They all have what's known as the right to veto. And while some permanent members, like France and the UK, are more open to expansion, Russia, China and the U.S. have been more cautious or directly opposed. It would take a whole lot of support to modify the UN Charter, and to get all five P5 members to agree at the same time to restrict their own power. But despite of all its flaws, experts generally agree: the UN creates a vital space for diplomacy, mediation, and maintaining international peace. It has indisputably helped save lives, lifted people out of poverty and starvation and maintained global order. So we're going to break down what is veto power, how the P5 got this power.

These two Russian teens are facing up to 5 years in prison for “inciting extremism” simply by sharing memes online. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://youtu.be/Vjfyqtz4_wc People can be arrested for liking or sharing posts that insult religious sensitivities, such as one meme that depicted Game of Thrones' Jon Snow (played by actor Kit Harington) as Jesus. In the past year, 604 people have been arrested, most of whom are under the age of 25. One major case involves a group called 'The New Greatness' which formed on the social media app Telegram, essentially Russia's equivalent to Facebook. 'The New Greatness' became a political opposition group that the Russian government called an extremist community. The extremism and organizing began when a man who called himself 'Ruslan D' joined the group. After protesting led to ten arrests, the only detail authorities could uncover about Ruslan D was his 'real' name: Alexander Konstantinov. But was that actually his real name at all?

Happiest Countries In The World: Explained | NowThis World Happiest Countries In The World: Explained | NowThis World
2 months ago En
Each year, the official World Happiness Report tells us which countries are the ‘happiest’ — so who gets to decide what the ‘good life’ looks like? » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://youtu.be/1oDyQP5Ycgw Let's talk about happy countries. Today, we're breaking down the annual World Happiness Report, to explain which countries are the happiest countries in the world and why. When we look at global rankings, we're often talking about things like purchasing power, military resources, trade partnerships. But some experts say happiness is actually a better indicator of development and public policy successes than other factors. The World Happiness Report - now in its sixth year - is produced by a UN initiative called the Sustainable Development Solutions Network. They've managed to break down a topic that's both fundamentally subjective and hard to quantify. Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, and Finland, the Nordic countries, are in the top ten. And they've all ranked among the top 10 since the report was first put out. And Switzerland - this year's #5 - has also always hovered near the top also. So what are the factors (people, resources, education, social services, income, unemployment, gdp) that rank the Nordic countries among the happiest countries in the world? We spoke to an economist, John Helliwell, who has edited the reports since the beginning. He said the data were compiled from the World Gallup poll, wherein people were asked to value their lives as a whole, with the best possible life being a 10 and the worst possible being a 0. Of course, a countries happiness is subjective and hard to quantify. And just because a country makes it onto the ""Happiest countries"" list, doesn't mean they're free of problems or criticism. For example, the Nordic countries have been among those witnessing a rise of far-right political parties and nationalist anti-immigrant sentiment after the European migrant crisis began in 2015.

Pope Francis: The Controversial Catholic Leader | NowThis World Pope Francis: The Controversial Catholic Leader | NowThis World
3 months ago En
Pope Francis is facing bombshell allegations that have put the papacy directly in the crosshairs of a potential scandal. But the Catholic Pope isn't new to being at the center of controversies with the Catholic church. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://youtu.be/lqwFsao_EsM Born Jorge Mario Bergoglio in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1936 - Catholic Pope Francis was the son of Italian immigrants who fled the fascist dictatorship of Benito Mussolini. Bergoglio dedicated his life to the Roman Catholic church in 1958 when he joined the novitiate of the Society of Jesus. Fast forward to March 13, 2013 -- a billow of white smoke rose above the Sistine Chapel. That was the moment Jorge Mario Bergoglio, became known as Pope Francis. Pope Francis became the 266th leader of the Roman Catholic church. His leadership would bring in a new wave of firsts for the Vatican. Pope Francis was the first pope from Latin America, the first Jesuit, and first non-European in over 1,000 years. He said he wanted to shift the church's priority to helping the poor and marginalized. Pope Francis was seen as a reformer, someone who wanted to push the Catholic church forward. He's made relatively supportive comments about the LGBTQ community in 2013, saying quote "If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?" He's warned of the growing dangers of climate change, argued that the death penalty is "inadmissible," and gave priests the right to "forgive abortions," a medical procedure that would have automatically resulted in the excommunication from the church. But these signs of change didn't sit well with some conservatives in the church. In today's episode, we're going to explore some of the controversies of Pope Francis' past, and the recent allegations that might leave some to ask, will pope Francis resign?

Why Are U.S. Bombs Being Dropped on Yemen? | NowThis World Why Are U.S. Bombs Being Dropped on Yemen? | NowThis World

The United Nations has called the conflict in Yemen "the worst humanitarian crisis" in the world today. Here's how the U.S. is a part of the problem. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://youtu.be/haPnUDM9pdU In Yemen on August 9, 2018 -- young boys boarded a school bus for what was meant to be a daylong field trip filled with excitement. But that day of fun, soon turned into a day of horror and tragedy as they became the latest victims of a Saudi Yemen war. A Saudi Arabia led military coalition dropped a 500 pound laser guided bomb on the bus killing about 51 Yemeni people and injuring about 79 other people. The horrific images that emerged from the scene of the attack not only drew the world's attention to the Yemen civil war and the Yemen airstrikes, but also to the international partnerships that are supporting Saudi Arabia's relentless bombardment of its neighbor to the south. Especially after subsequent reporting revealed that the bomb used in the Yemen raid might have been supplied by the United States. The Yemen conflict has created what the United Nations has called ""the worst humanitarian crisis"" in the world today. Conservative estimates say that this war has resulted in death of at least 5,000 civilians, created a famine in the country that claimed the lives of about 50,000 people, pushed 8.4 million Yemenis to the brink of starvation, and sparked a cholera epidemic that has affected more than 1 million people. This recent conflict in Yemen began with Yemen's civil war, which launched out of the instability that followed a popular uprising in 2011. Currently, Yemen is in the midst of the Yemen civil war which launched out of the instability that followed a popular uprising in 2011. By September 2014, an Iranian-backed group called the Houthis gained control of large parts of Yemen, including its capital Sana'a. And in March 2015 a Saudi Arabian and United Arab Emirate-led military coalition began an airstrike campaign against Houthi targets in the country. And the U.S. has been supporting the Saudi-led coalition since 2015. On this week's episode of NowThis World, Judah is going to look into this horrific attack and the role that the U.S. continues to play in Yemen.

But now he's earned a new title. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2o91xpU Imran Khan new prime minister, then-captain of the Pakistan national cricket team led his team to an unprecedented victory for the country. It was Pakistan's first and only World Cup win to date - and a moment of extreme pride for its citizens. Prime Minister Khan, who was already a celebrated cricketer throughout the '70s and '80s, saw his celebrity status skyrocket even further. Beloved both at home and in the West, he had an active and public social and love life - his marriage to British heiress in 1995 making international news. He also made headlines as a philanthropist, fundraising millions of dollars to open a cancer hospital for low-income patients in honor of his late mother in December, 1994. It was around this time - a few years after the World Cup victory - that speculation about Khan's leadership potential started popping up, and it was rumored was he was setting his sights on a political career. Soon he would outline what would become his core issue for 22 years: ridding Pakistani politics of corruption. And in 1996, he made it official: founding the Pakistan [Teh-reek - eh- In-saf] Tehreek-e-Insaf, or PTI party. Also referred to as the "Movement for Justice," the party was branded as an anti-corruption socio-political movement, aiming to create a quote "self-reliant modern Islamic Republic." But for almost two decades, PTI Imran Khan's party saw few victories. So how did this former sports star he end up securing the highest political position in a country of almost 200 million people?

Will India's Supreme Court Decriminalize Gay Sex? | NowThis World Will India's Supreme Court Decriminalize Gay Sex? | NowThis World
3 months ago En
As India’s Supreme Court is challenged to decriminalize gay sex, the world is watching to see if it will be a win for LGBTQ+ rights or if the country will remain stuck in the past. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://youtu.be/A41XXPtl1XM In India, the fate of millions hang in the balance. Their Supreme Court is currently deciding whether it will scrap one of the world's oldest laws that criminalizes gay sex. Many say Section 377 has stripped millions of gay people of their dignity and privacy and has also created a hostile environment where gay and transgender people fear reporting things like sexual harassment or assault -- because they fear they too will be arrested, even if they are the victims. But it's important to note that same-sex relations weren't always this taboo in India. For much of its pre- colonial history, the country remained rather relaxed when it came to depictions of same-sex love and gender identity. But that acceptance eventually eroded due to British colonialism. Section 377 can be traced back to other British laws that policed morality. It began with the Buggery Act of 1533 in the United Kingdom. That law was enacted under King Henry the 8th and outlawed things like anal sex and bestiality, and essentially outlawed sexual relations between men as a whole. If someone was found guilty under this law, it would be punishable by death. In this episode of NowThis World Judah Robinson will explore the history of this outdated law and what it's meant for the LGBTQ community India. Other countries like the United States, Nepal, Canada, and more, have all overturned similar laws that criminalize homosexuality. Could it be India's turn to take this step?

Which Countries Have 'Marry-Your-Rapist' Laws? | NowThis World Which Countries Have 'Marry-Your-Rapist' Laws? | NowThis World
4 months ago En
Did you know that laws still exist around the world today that exonerate alleged and convicted rapists if they marry their victims? » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the previous episode: https://go.nowth.is/2ntsDYu Protests have cropped up in countries around the world, from Turkey to Lebanon to Morocco. According to the World Bank, the Philippines, Algeria, Bahrain, Iraq, Angola, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Kuwait, Libya, & Syria, have legal provisions stipulating that the perpetrator of rape or sexual assault can escape punishment by marrying the victim There are also variations of these laws that exist in other parts of the world - for example, in Greece, Russia, Serbia, and Thailand an alleged rapist can avoid prosecution if the victim is underage, and in Singapore, Romania, Thailand and Turkey, if the victim "forgives" him. These laws were back in the news recently after Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas repealed that state's version of the legislation. It was a huge step forward, and came not long after a wave of other countries in the region did the same. But there are still countries around the world with different variations of these laws still in place - and though the majority exist in the Middle East and Africa, the West isn't exempt. In fact, the legislation largely draws its roots to a 19th century French code. So what countries still have these archaic laws? In this episode of NowThis World Alex Janin is looking into these laws - how they came to be, how they're still hurting women, and whether the problem stops with repealing them. Though variations of these laws have mostly died out in the West - Human Rights Watch researcher Rothna Begum says they largely originated from the French Napoleonic Code of 1810, which stated that if the kidnapper "married the girl whom he has stolen," the family could waive his criminal prosecution.

How Corrupt Was Cambodia's Election? | NowThis World How Corrupt Was Cambodia's Election? | NowThis World
4 months ago En
Cambodia just had a major election, but there wasn't much suspense involved. The outcome of the Cambodia election 2018, as expected, was declared a win for authoritarian Prime Minister Hun Sen, who has been in power for over 33 years. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2LOewM2 This was the 6th general Cambodia election since the UN sponsored the country's free and fair vote in 1993, but some analysts say that the more elections that have been held, the more authoritarian the Hun Sen has become. Journalists and human rights groups say Cambodia is sliding into a full-fledged dictatorship. And we spoke to an expert on authoritarian regimes and democratization in Southeast Asia who says the country is already there. In this episode of NowThis World, Versha, will be exploring Cambodia news and the question: how did Cambodia and the Cambodia people get here? But before we look at the latest Cambodia election, we will need to understand who Hun Sen is. So we first explore the world's longest currently-serving Prime Minister, Hun Sen, who first came to power in 1985, but was a political figure in the country years before that. A series of twists and turns in the Cambodian power structure eventually landed him in the right place at the right time. In the past year, the Cambodian election crackdown and the crackdown on human rights has escalated. In addition to eliminating the major opposition party, major independent newspapers have been forced to close, in order to silence critical reporting. So, now that the Cambodian People's Party has taken another victory, what's next for Hun Sen and the country? Hun Sen has committed to staying Prime Minister for at least another decade, and reportedly he's also been grooming his sons to take over when the time comes. But as the younger, more educated generation grows increasingly disillusioned with Hun Sen's authoritarian rule, could a mass protest reasonably overthrow the government?

It was a decades-long conflict that had a huge human cost and severely damaged Eritrea and Ethiopia relations. The declaration of peace wasn’t just symbolic either, it had immediate real life consequences for people on both sides of the border. Diplomatic relations were restored, flights between the countries resumed, and even phone lines opened up allowing people in each country to call each other for the first time in two decades. In April 2018, Abiy Ahmed came to power in Ethiopia. The 41-year-old is one of Africa’s youngest leaders and has made a few reforms since gaining power. He pardoned political prisoners, and rolled back censorship of over 200 websites, blogs and television stations. But the most shocking of them all, was Ahmed’s announcement that he would “fully accept and implement” the 2000 Peace Treaty with Eritrea, officially ending a war that he had even fought in himself. And Eritrea’s Isaias Afwerki was on board. On July 9th, 2018 in Eritrea’s capital Asmara, the two leaders released a joint statement saying they were QUOTE, “Determined to close this very costly chapter, which also had a detrimental role in the Horn of Africa, and to make up for lost opportunities and create even bigger golden opportunities for their peoples.” In this episode of NowThis World we’re going to explore the complicated history between these two countries and what led to the end of this conflict.

Nicaragua is in the midst of its deadliest unrest since the country's civil war - which ended after decades of violence and instability in 1990. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://youtu.be/VDKNMgKZoRk Hundreds have died amid government crackdowns on protests calling for President Daniel Ortega to step down. Citizens, activists, and journalists alike are calling attention to the crisis, which they say has been vastly underreported by western media. One of those people is Dánae Vílchez, a Nicaraguan journalist who has been covering the Nicaragua protests since May. We spoke to her from the capital city of Managua, Nicaragua where much of the violence is taking place. She helped put in context just how bad things have gotten. Over the last two months, those calling for Ortega to resign have been met with resistance from pro-government paramilitary forces. Amnesty International recently reported that Ortega's government is colluding with paramilitary groups, and accusing the police of intentionally allowing perpetrators of violence to flee the scene. The order from the government, the report claims, is to "shoot to kill." The government has denied any connection or responsibility to the killings. Regional human rights group, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, has been tracking the violence, and reports more than more than 300 people been killed and upwards of one thousand people injured. They have denounced the government's excessive use of force, illegal detentions, censorship of the press "and other forms of intimidation," including the deaths of hundreds of demonstrators as well as several police officers. The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights was granted access to investigate the violence and even the UN has called for access. But Ortega has indicated he does not plan to step down. Still, people hope that Ortega could face international persecution, even if he can't be brought to justice in his home country.

What's Causing South Sudan's Hunger Crisis? NowThis World Reports | NowThis World What's Causing South Sudan's Hunger Crisis? NowThis World Reports | NowThis World
5 months ago En
We're talking about South Sudan in this episode of NowThis World. We've come to The Kakuma Refugee camp in northern Kenya, just 80 miles away from South Sudan's border, to speak to some of the people who've recently fled South Sudan to find out more about this crisis. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://youtu.be/7XqoKgch4Ck Over a million people in South Sudan are at risk of severe hunger - again. And while hunger has always troubled the young country, the link between it and conflict has meant that more South Sudanese people are hungry now - more than ever before Hunger isn't a new issue for this country. It has experienced waves of drought, famine and severe hunger as recently as 2017. And these issues have only been exacerbated by South Sudan's civil war. In 2013, just two years after South Sudan became independent, then-president Salva Kiir dissolved his entire cabinet and accused then-Vice President Riek Machar of planning a failed coup. Salva Kiir is an ethnic Dinka, the country's largest group, while Machar is from Nuer, the second largest community. The political quarrel eventually turned into ethnic violence. The fighting has displaced over 4 million South Sudanese, exacerbated human needs and HALTED relief operations. One challenge the nation faces every year are the seasons. South Sudanese rely on dry seasons for harvest and refer to the rainy seasons as the hunger season, because it's the time they rely on stored food before the next harvest. This year's harvest is THE SMALLEST on record since the country was formed in 2011. Over the past few years, a number of peace talks have been held with little results. Although ending the war may not solve all food insecurity issues in the country, one thing is clear, the war ending would be a step in the right direction.
